My October Goop Birchbox

Found my Birchbox hiding in my mailbox (usually it's at my doorstep) while I've been impatiently waiting. I opted for the Goop box because I was intrigued since I know Goop has a very loyal following. For those who don't know, Goop is a lifestyle site founded by Gwyneth Paltrow. Here's what I got:

Karuna Hydrating Treatment mask (1 mask/ 4 masks $28) | Naked Princess Naked Shine Luscious Lip Gloss in Barely Nude (full size $26) | Lulu Organics Lavendar & Clary Sage Hair Powder (.17 oz sample/ 4 oz $30) | Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè - 24 Hour Miracle Cream (2 .06 fl oz packets/ 1 fl oz $16) | Luna LemonZest snack bar (15 bars $18.75)

I was intrigued to try this dry shampoo. I love dry shampoos! This one smelled good but white powders are tricky for brunettes. The directions say rub between your palms but I feel like that doesn't help with the application. I put a little in my hair and didn't notice a dramatic difference. May have to play more with it.

Supposedly this is a cult favorite among models and makeup artists at this moisturizer acts as primer and makeup remover. I love a multi-purpose product! I liked it as a moisturizer so will have to try it for it's other purposes.
Just stepped out of the show so please excuse
You may have seen me rocking this on Instagram. This Karuna mask was similar to the Elizabeth Grant Collagen Mask. It contains Natto, a Japanese soybean which helps retain skin's natural moisture levels as it exfoliates to boost the look of dull, dehydrated skin. It's an all-natural fiber cloth made from bio-degradable wood pulp that contains plant extracts, peptides and anti-oxidants. I really like this mask since my skin has been ridiculously dry lately. It did have that "all-natural" smell though.

You already know my love for Naked Princess products. This lip gloss was a gorgeous nude color. Naked Princess lip glosses stimulate collagen with a gentle lip plumper. They are infused with Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil & Antioxidants. Best part is they are cruelty free and contain no parabens, no sulfates and no phthalates.

I'm not a fan of lemon so didn't like the snack bar but do like that the support the Breast Cancer Fund.

What did you get in your Birchbox this month?
